Layered with Troll Beads

Two of my good friends, a few months back, suggested I feature a photo on Instagram of my “go-to accessories”. The pieces I wear over and over again. The pieces that look infinitely different when styled with different outfits. The pieces that would make my “cost per wear” calculation nearly zero.   Which accessories made the cut? I can tell you indefinitely that my layered troll beads bracelets did.  With flying colors.

I have owned two leather wrap bracelets for years and barely take them off. I wear them to the gym, in the shower, and to bed at night. They are so versatile and can be layered beautifully and effortlessly with so many of my other go-to pieces that it has been a no brainer to wear them over and over and over again.

Many of you already know that I love to layer everything. Necklaces, rings, bracelets, tops and even my outerwear in the winter months. Layering for me is my comfort zone. I feel it lends a sort of laid back, relaxed vibe and is so incredibly easy to achieve.  With a few new pieces added to your accessories wardrobe, mixed with what you already own, you too can become a layering queen. Believe me,  you’ll become addicted to layering once you start.

Here are a few photos featuring how I styled my new Troll Beads twisted copper cuff with skull charm 💀 (how cool is this charm?). I layered one with my leather wrap bracelets, which I referenced above, and wore one on its own around my upper arm. Below you’ll see that I wore them all together on one arm, which I often do.

I am a huge proponent of thinking outside the box (see my previous post about that by clicking here). So, when Troll Beads asked me to partner with them for the second time and gave me the freedom to style their pieces as I see fit to my personal style, I was all in. As soon as I saw this skull charm, I knew exactly what I wanted to do … and I couldn’t wait to layer them. I ordered two of the exact same cuff, as I often do, and layered them with my leather wrap bracelets.

Makeup That Feels Like Air

Many of us would like to have a makeup foundation that has the ability to provide full coverage but doesn’t actually FEEL like we’re wearing makeup. A buildable foundation that covers up hyperpigmentation without a caked on, heavy finish. One that doesn’t settle into fine lines and wrinkles around our eyes, marrionette lines and frown marks. A foundation that feels like air; like we’re not wearing any makeup at all.  Well, I’m happy to inform you that I’ve found it — the new Luminess Airbrush Legend system is AH-MAZING, my friends.

For starters, these photos have been untouched (HELLLLO dark spots 👋). I am constantly trying to conceal what years of sun exposure has done to my skin. Many times, due to unsuccessful attempts, I give up and only use BB Cream or tinted moisturizer because I hate (yes, hate) the feeling that I’m wearing makeup. I also despise when makeup creases and pools  in my ever growing crows feet and other fine lines on my skin. I mean, really? Let’s just accentuate one of the reasons we are wearing makeup to begin with? No thank you.

Introduce Luminess Air and all of our concerns vanish into thin air — literally. This makeup application is much better and much easier than you think.  It took me less than 5 minutes to apply every step and I even took a stab at contouring! I applied a primer, a foundation (concentrating on dark spots more than once for that buildable coverage I talked about earlier), a bronzer, a highlighter and a blush. I even cleaned the tubing afterwards with a little water. All done in less than 5 minutes.  It was fun, invigorating and super easy. It not only covered my dark spots but also made my pores appear smaller and never settled into fine lines. Can I get an AMEN?!? Man, I love this stuff.

Since I’ve been asked several times if it’s messy to apply, I would like to address that question here. The answer is NO! Surprisingly, it isn’t messy one bit. I applied it while wearing this white dress and not one speckle of makeup was found. I also would like to mention that it’s ideal for sensitive skin since it’s fragrance free and your dirty brushes (and hands) never touch your face. Oh, and one last secret — it can last up to 18 hours🙌🏻🙌🏻
